HI and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and happy to help you. Will you be getting immediate dentures ( they are placed in the mouth immediately after the removal of your teeth)? How old are you? Are you currently taking any medications or supplements?

The only prep I would recommend is that you maintain good nutrition and hydration status before and after. Make sure you are drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day. Since it may be difficult to eat solid food for a few days, you may want to consider a blender to puree your foods to make it easier to eat. Vitamins and minerals are an important component in the healing process...Here is a good article that will be helpful in making food choices: WHAT TO EAT AFTER SURGERY
